Oklahoma City coach Todd Nelson was lamenting his club's power play Friday night.

“Once again, our power play was atrocious,” he said. “That was the difference in the game. You should gain momentum off your power play. Instead we lost it.”

What's more, Rockford is last in the American Hockey League in penalty killing.
